26/8/23 – MARTY’S DAILY ALBUM PICKS

Music today has continued with the angular beauty of King Crimson and their third album Lizard (1970) and their second album to be released in that year. Ooh, those Mellotrons. Greg Lake was replaced by Gordon Haskell on bass and vocals (his is an interesting story), YesJon Anderson sang on one track. Eventual yachtsman Andy McCulloch played the drums but left after this album for sessioneering, to be replaced by Ian Wallace (another with an interesting story through his session work). Mel Collins joined on flute and sax (and played zillions of interesting sessions). Pete Sinfield remained as lyricist, producer, and twiddled some synth knobs. Fripp would last forever.
